A century and a half of political comings and goings unfold with this 1860s-2010s ephemera collection. This large assortment is long on presidential items, including several 19th Century publications related to James A. Garfield. Condition is very favorable overall, with only a very few items showing lesser quality. 

Featured are:

1870s-1880s James A. Garfield related publications (5) range (VG to EX-MT) in condition with: "3/4/1881 Inaugural Address"; "Maxims of James Abram Garfield"; "The Life and Character of James A. Garfield"; "Eliza Vallon Garfield, Mother of President James A. Garfield, Addresses Made at Her Burial by B.A. Hinsdale and H.R. Cooley"; and "Arabella Mason Rudolph (Garfield's mother-in-law) Her Ancestry, Life, and Character".  

1865 New York Weekly Tribune newspaper page framed to 18x24, shows moderate age appropriate wear, though all text remains distinct. Dated March 11, 1865, this page features coverage of Abraham Lincoln's second inauguration. 

1902 Republican State Committee TLS display framed to 12x15. Dated 10/27/1902, this letter is signed by Tomas J. Akins, Chairman, Republican State Committee, and presents in pleasing state.  

1923 E.G. Renesch "All Our Presidents" litho mounted to overall dimensions of 26x22 in a period frame. This antique litho is a revised edition of Renesch's 1921 print with portraits of all U.S. Presidents from Washington through Harding. An image of Calvin Coolidge, who succeeded Harding, has been added over the White House at bottom center. Though creasing with color breaks is present, this antique piece retains abundant display appeal. 


1926 "Republican Missouri" hardcover book (VG). 

1949 Radio Correspondents Association panorama photo framed to dimensions of 36x12. Light vertical creases are noted approximately every 6" across the width, otherwise an attractive piece. A caption dated 2/5/49 at top center, indicates this photo was taken at the Radio Correspondents seventh annual dinner honoring the President of the United States, which in this case was Harry Truman. 

1953 Eisenhower/Nixon inauguration program with candidates photo cover (VG). 

1950s-2000s Presidential inauguration ephemera from various ceremony events with: invitations with envelopes (10); tickets (5); guides (4); and programs (2). 

1964 LBJ for the USA poster with photo of Lyndon B. Johnson, shows considerable wear including tape repairs, but remains display worthy. While smaller versions of this particular poster with Johnson facing forward as opposed to at an angle are readily found, this 28x40 large size example positions as much tougher. 

1960s-2000s Framed displays (3) in excellent condition with: 1960s Barry Goldwater 6x4 photo display; 1994 RNC Gala announcement with Ronald Reagan tribute; 2001 George W. Bush inauguration photo with stamps postmarked 1/20/21. 

1970s-1990s RNC ephemera with: passes (19); programs/publications (5); and cachets (1); 

1980s 8-1/2 x 11-1/2" Matching framed displays present in better to excellent condition, with: Ronald Reagan (2) different; George H.W. Bush (2) different; invitations from the 1981 and 1985 inaugurations of Reagan/Bush as president and vice president. Clearly these items were acquired from the programs that come with inauguration invitation packets.

c.1996 Republican National Committee campaign production video tapes in original cases (8) with Dole promos and Clinton/Gore ads that are surely anti-democratic in nature. 

1970s-1990s Cups/glasses (4) in like-new state with: Ford; 1989 Bush inauguration; and Dole (2). 

1950s-1980s Newspapers (5) range (GD to EX) with: 1953 Eisenhower, 1963 Kennedy, 1974 Nixon, 1981 Reagan and 1981 Iran hostages.

1995 Statesman's Gala marble paperweight with Newt Gingrich facsimile signature on a brass title plate. 

1996 Dole Kemp t-shirt size "XL" in like-new condition. 

2010 "Spoken from the Heart" first edition book in like-new state with dust jacket, signed by author Laura Bush ("10"), no authentication due to time/cost restraints. 

Also present is an assortment of ephemera with: photos (7); matchbooks (7); bumper stickers/decals (7); brochures/handbills (34); cachets/FDCs (5); tickets (3); postcards (2); and miscellaneous (4).
